get bigger outside of washington, d.c. a current problem, if you will, for the president -- for the republican party. after nearly a seven-year quest for the presidency, it was not the night mitt romney had hoped for. msnbc's chris jansing is outside headquarters in boston. it's eerie how quiet it is. there's nothing going on behind you. that's not the way they thought this was going to be the morning after the election. >> to say the least. and you mentioned mitt romney had spent almost seven years for president. it was over in about five minutes. a short of gracious concession speech. but that was preceded, chuck, by 90 of what were thought to be bizarre minutes where the media called for barack obama. and some for mitt romney said they would contest it there. at one point ryan got in his van and returned to the hotel. there was a question even when they said he was coming over here to make remarks whether it would be a concession speech. about an hour and a half after the networks called it, the mitt romney did call the president and then came into this ballroom for wh

another fight in washington. >> there are really two issues there. >> a revenue side, yes. >> where is that revenue going to come from? >> increasing tax rates is going to harm economic growth. >> warren buffett was out this morning talking about tacking the wealthy. >> time to make the tax rates more progressive. >> that's just silly. >> grover norquist, he wanted ground government in the bathtub. i hope he slips in there with it. >> medicaid, social security. >> this is not part of the conversation. we're not going to raid social security. just another fight in washington. >> there's going to be blood and hair and eyeballs all over the floor. >> i'm more positive than most. >> if not, we go off the supposed cliff. >> the fiscal cliff or slope. the bump of various height. >>> thelma and louise might need to make room in the car for the president of the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials.

me now, cnbc washington reporter eamon javers. you heard the numbers we just ran down. what is the short-term tangible consequence if we don't get action on the fiscal cliff. >> cote is right, it does cause uncertainly. life is uncertain and so they know that there's going to be this issue and that washington is going to wrestle with it. in the short term, the very short term, i think actually some of the hype around the fiscal cliff is a little overblown, particularly because the first couple of days or week or so after we go over the fiscal cliff we won't see all that many impacts. all these tax and spending impacts take months to go into effect. it doesn't impact the economy until people start paying taxes, which could be several months down the line for most americans. on the spending side as well, spending is built into the cake so again you'd be looking at stuff that would be impacting the out months. for the first couple of months, no real specific impact. the big thing to worry about is whether wall street freaks out or not about the fact that we've gone over the fis

have to take this at face value. there are so few real surprises that we find anymore in washington in the lives of public officials. this certainly ranks among them. all day long ang dre ya mitchell who first broke the story, there was indication that something was up with general petraeus. you would get speculation about benghazi. and then came that statement from general petraeus that you just read saying that he had an extramarital affair and he had tendered his resignation. it turns out that happened yesterday here at the white house. he came to visit the president. he offered his resignation. he told the president why. the president called him back "today" and accepted that resignation and elevating now mike morell, a career cia officer as interim head and let the speculation begin on what's going to be happening there and where it fits in the con sell laying of all these famous names moving about the cabinet at the outset of the second term. >> given the fact that the president met with the general yesterday, is there some suggestion or any suggestion that the president may h

is now going to get characterized. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 29, 2012. in case you've been in a bunker all night, the winning powerball numbers are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29. the powerball number itself is 6. the reason i'm here and the reason my entire staff showed up for work today is because nobody here won. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. this morning, mitt romney comes to washington. the last time president obama and romney came face to face they were locked in a bitter fight for the presidency. today they'll try to bury the hatchet as the president makes good on his election night promise to engage with romney, one' elaborated on in his first post election news conference. >> i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. he presented some ideas during the course of the campaign that i actually agreed with and so it would be interesting to talk to him about something like that. >> this is a meeting, it's safe to say neither the president or romney is thrilled about doing. but they're doing it because it's the right thing to do af
came to washington with the president in 2009, he sat down in a room with members of congress, both republicans and democrats, who had supported comprehensive immigration reform in the past and sid, i want to work with you. let's lock arms and get this done. and then a policy decision was made by the republican leadership that they were not going to play and they didn't want to move on this issue because they didn't want to antagonize the most strident voices. they paid a big price for that. you mentioned the overwhelming vote that the president got among latino voter. i think that they are going to have an opportunity to move on that fairly soon. >> david, i've been around the president five or six years. certainly you've been around them more than most. the thing that strikes me is how cool he is under fire. he never -- with all of this ugliness and acrimony, he's never at one time responded and played into the ugliness during this campaign. and the other thing is that he seems to be a big picture thinker. in all of the meetings, he always is kind of above the minute minutia, the
numbers. details ahead. >>> meanwhile, washington was abuzz over avoiding the looming fiscal cliff. the president's lunch with mitt romney, the united nations note on palestine. all this as joe biden was christmas shopping. >>> and some amazing random acts of kindness. good morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. and today the first of the two grand prize powerball winners will come forward to reveal themselves and have their lives change forever. and there's also buzz about a potential code within the winning numbers. nbc's kerry sanders has that story. >> reporter: in tiny dearborn, missouri, where just about everyone knows everyone, the question is was it one of their own who bought a winning powerball ticket? >> it's exciting, very exciting. we never, ever thought that we would sell the winning ticket, and here it is. we did. >> reporter: folks in this farming community just off interstate 70 are now trying to figure out if the winning numbers were chosen with meaning. dearborn is but 35 miles north of kansas city, home of the royals baseball team. those winning lottery numbers? the
>>> newly elected president obama is back in washington, automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect at the beginning of the year, known together as the fiscal cliff. members of one of the most deeply divided congresses in history are sending smoke signals up capitol hill to note they are ready to get back to the bargaining table. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> as washington digs back in, politicians and pundits alike are still post-gaming obama's election night victory. >> as soon as the votes started coming in and we matched them up against the model, we were well convinced that the thing was going to go according to plan. >> republicans in a crisis of their own after mitt romney's disastrous defeat. does the governor's loss and demise signal a greater crossroads for the grand 'ole party? >> i think it's more of a branding problem because the branding proble
disneyworld turned into the democrats magic kingdom. good morning from washington. it's monday, november 12, 2012. this is "the daily rundown. "i'm chuck todd. this is the federal holiday in honoring veterans day, by the way. to my first reads of the morning. it's a shiny metal object, the david petraeus investigation. it's overshadowing what is the biggest story still in washington for the next two months. the president this week will kick off an effort to rally public support for a deficit reduction plan that includes tax increases on the wealthy, leveraging the political capital that he believes he earned last tuesday. >> this was a central question in the election. and on tuesday we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. democrats, independents, and some republicans. >> that was his video address from the weekend. the president will meet with labor and progressive leaders on tuesday. he hosts leaders from the business community on wednesday. all in an effort to enlist support before he hosts bipartisan leaders of congress at the white house on friday. republica
, not focused on our politics here in washington. >> the framework that i've outlined in our meeting today is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness we put revenue on the table as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> i can say on the part of my members that we fully understand that you can't save the country until you have entitlement programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. >> the president also had a special message for the speaker. >> tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday so for those of you who want to wish him a happy birthday, we will -- we're not going to embarrass him with a cake because we didn't know how many candles were needed. >> yeah, right. >> but we want to wish him a happy birthday. >> that's 63 candles and one for good luck. the president did give him a bottle of 1997 brunelo retailing for $125. "parks and recreations" gets her moment with the vice president. >> this isn't happening. this -- this isn't real. >> no. it's happening. i'm delighted to have you
." >>> good evening i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. being right means never having to say you're sorry. the hard right isn't about to say they need to get more moderate. their staking to their attitude, taxes, the works. the people who hate to lose are blaming the right. the people who hate the center almost just as much as the left are saying they're right and they're going to not budge an inch. this looks like a fight with legs and not a bad spectator sport for progressives as napoleon once said, never interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake. robert traynham and erin pikes. this should be an interesting match-up, you two. let's talk about this situation. i want to show you a tape from deny senior on "morning joe," a foreign adviser to mitt romney. he took on mitt romney critics have been filing on him. >> tens of thousands of people, you could hear the top ten surrogates at the event. i'm backstage with some of them, i won't mention their names but talking about romney like he's reagan. you know, the debate performances were the best debate performance of
with arming hamas and its own stand offwith israel. joining me is dennis ross of the washington institute for institutional policy. dennis, welcome. let's talk about the role that iran played in this conflict over the last eight, nine days. iron that out for me. >> i think we have to put it into larger perspective. i don't think they've played a role over the last few days. all the arms that, in fact, islamist jihad and others why gaza were using, almost all of them were coming from the iranians. they have built up a long range rocket capacity. that's what the israelis went after. they have done everything they could to make gaza an armed island that can be a platform for an attack against israel. they have constantly encouraged attacks against israel. iran has played a major role in terms of being the provider of the arsenal that existed there. my guess is they will now try to replenish it because the israelis have stepped back that arsenal in a fairly significant way. >> what about the suggestion that israel was doing all of this and while doing this over the last eight, nine days they
've seen this time and again in washington and elsewhere. you know, these investigations take on a life of their own, they become exercises in self-justification and you don't want to -- it's very hard on a human level to say, oh, well, forget because people get invested in this. who was the responsible -- there was some moment where that decision either was made, which seems unclear to me, and then this leaks anyway. or it wasn't. and so -- where was that? and when it involves these people do you not go to the attorney general? >> and, by the way, i want to know when -- was the attorney general brought? in why did the attorney general know? when did the attorney general know it? is the fbi really conducting investigation of the cia director without the attorney general knowing that the fbi's conducting -- >> and the white house counsel. how could the white house counsel. >> the white house counsel has to know. and let me tell you something, i'm not going to say how i know this, but let me tell you something, there are some people high up in official washington that knew about this. i k
on in washington right now. >> right. >> if the republican party were to change, don't you have to come around on women's issues like equal pay? like letting them make decisions with their body when it comes to health care? i mean, there are some social fundamental things right now that the republican party's out of step with. at least that's what i saw in this election. your thoughts on that. >> i think there's some legitimacy to that. look, you know, we're fundamentally a pro-life party. we believe very much in the sanctity of life. on that issue. >> i think 100%, on most things. and there's more young kids coming in, the opportunity the democrats are putting on the table. introduction of the hispanic community to the party. and in the sense that for the past ten years or so, but more recently, especially, we have really been tone deaf. you had george bush and a few others who tried to crack open and sort of expose some opportunities for the party to have a real dialogue in communication, but we've seen how that's played out. so this is realtime. i think your clarion call to the left is very
mitchell live in washington. congress is back. grover norquist's tax pledge could be history. and all eyes are now focusing on house republicans as talks to avoid going over that so-called fiscal cliff are picking up steam. joining me now, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc and ruth marcus, columnist and editorial writer for the "washington post." to you, mark, what is your read about what we've been hearing the last couple of days about grover norquist, the pledge and how much running room the speaker does have to b negotiating a deal. >> i did a spit take with my fruity pebbles watching "morning joe" because eric cantor's tone was unlike anything i've ever heard. his office is saying oh, no, he's against raising marginal rates, but it's clear that in the scheme of things, the biggest piece is does john boehner have enough running room to strike a deal involving some new revenue. i still am of the belief that the vote in the house, which will be a cliff hanger no matter what happens amongst the leaders in the white house, it will be a tough vote. i think it will
to really change the way washington works? >> i think a lot of it will be the tone that he and the republican leadership set coming out of this. i think there is clearly the possibility of change. i think that on the president's side and those of us that have been supportive and the democratic side, it is not a day of "i told you so" or gloating, because there was at a lot risk here. we'll dealt everything in this election from voter suppression to gay rights to women rights, so in many ways, we can exhale and say, we didn't go backwards. now how do we put our best foot forward to go forward and appeal to the republicans that we need to have some common ground without compromising our principles. that's going to be a delicate balance. i think romney's statement last night was positive and obviously i'm not one that has given him a lot of commendations but he said what needed to be said last night that i didn't think he would and we'll see where it goes. i think that the president and what he said and the tone he set is where those of us that are supportive are going to have
